Initializing a Const Member

Question:
I'm trying to initialize a const declared in a class. How do I do this?

This example fails:

 
class MyClass {
private:
  const int A;
}

MyClass::MyClass () {
  A = 1;
}
Do you have an example that works?

Answer:
You cannot initialize a const member inside the constructor body. For this purpose, you have to use a member initialization list, as follows:

 
class MyClass {
private:
  const int A;
public:
  MyClass::MyClass () : A(1) {}
}
